Trainer Selection

Choosing the right trainer is crucial. We work with trainers we can trust, who clearly know what they are doing, put the welfare of the horses first, and have an exceptional track record in placing their horses to achieve the best possible results. We look at their strike rate of winners to runners, and wins to runs. We also analyse their performances by the age of the horse and check the balance of success between all weather and turf. The statistics below are just focused on horses syndicated by Amazing Racing, and we think they show we do a pretty decent job of choosing good trainers!

Jennie Candlish

Jennie Candlish trains at Basford Grange, near Leek in Staffordshire, assisted by her partner, the former jumps jockey Alan O’Keeffe. Jennie started out training Arabians, which she also rode, enjoying numerous wins in the saddle, and she also became Champion Trainer in the Arabian racing world.

As a result of this success, she was encouraged to take over her current yard to train throughbreds, and she has quietly proven her ability with some memorable successes.

Although probably seen mainly as a National Hunt trainer, her strike rate with horses on the Flat is spectacular, and must be the envy of many so-called “big name” trainers. With her jumpers, she has also produced consistently good results over several seasons, and has enjoyed support from loyal owners who have been with her for many years, from right across the country.

Jennie is also skilled in chiropractic techniques and acupuncture, and these skills help enormously with any horses joining the yard who may have previously undiagnosed problems or injuries. Her ability to get the best out of her horses shows that Jennie and Alan make a great team, and we are delighted to be involved in the yard!


Daniel Mark Loughnane

Mark worked his way up in the racing industry as a stable-lad, head-lad, and Assistant Trainer, before taking out a training licence in his own right. He also rode winners as both a Conditional and an Amateur jockey, and worked with some excellent trainers in Ireland and the UK, which helped him to develop his own approach to training.

He began his training career in his native Ireland, and moved to the UK in 2011. After five seasons based in Staffordshire, in 2017 he relocated to a brand new purpose-built yard in the village of Rock, not far from Kidderminster in Worcestershire, which has most impressive facilities.

Mark has trained three horses for Amazing Racing, Sunshineandbubbles, Khajaaly, and The Firm, and he has won with all of them.
